Muse Sampler

I gotta tell you, my man, this band has chops! How many other groups do you know have solid 80s dancetronic and metal influences? I mean, other than Slipknot. Seriously though, Muse definitely knows what they are doing by now. They have been around for 23 years now, but the aren't letting up now. Very … Continue reading Muse Sampler

Daft Punk Sampler

Because of all … Continue reading Mac DeMarco Sampler
